KIIS FM's JoJo Wright will share the K-pop boy band's latest Billboard hit this week.

Following their plans to rock Jingle Ball 2018Monsta X is queuing up their next strategic move towards U.S. infiltration with a major radio opportunity. 

Billboard can reveal that the K-pop boy band has recorded an English version of their latest single "Shoot Out" that will make its debut on American radio thanks to a premiere from JoJo Wright on Los Angeles' 102.7 KIIS FM. Monsta X fans can expect the hard-hitting, aggressive attitude of the Korean original to stay intact with similarly themed lyrics and evocative imagery in the lyrics: "I'm ready for the savior/Because you cut to my heart like a razor/In the darkness, losing my way, giving my breath away," the guys sing, before describing a "love like a shoot out."

This week on the charts, "Shoot Out" climbs from No. 10 to No. 8 on Billboard's World Digital Song Sales chart, marking the band's ninth top 10 on the chart. "Shoot Out" is the lead single off the group's latest EP Take.1: Are You There?, which stands at No. 10 on the World Albums chart (after debuting at No. 7 last week) following its Oct. 22 release.

Look out for the English version of Monsta X's "Shoot Out" to premiere on Friday, Nov. 9, at 9:00 a.m. PST on KIIS FM.
